Are you making these 4 common mistakes in your squat exercise?

We all know that squats will give us that lovely shapely bum we all want – but are we doing them properly?

Squats will only work if we do them properly and safely.

Here are four common mistakes that occur when squatting:

1. Leaning forward/backwards
Use your core to ensure you stay balanced and are not leaning too far forward or too backwards.

2. Too quick
If you are dropping into your squat too fast, this may be an issue. Take your time and make your movements mindful and steady.

3. Go lower
Don’t be afraid to drop it down low.

4. Knees going inwards
Keep your feet rooted and if your knees have a tendency to fall inwards as your lower, try using a slightly wider stance.
